Due the high rate of teenage suicides I am pleading to Pastors to please sponsor the use of your churches for a few hours At least once or twice week. I strongly believe that our community is in dire need of a place where we can have group therapy for:

1. Teenagers with suicidal tendencies.

2. Victims of school bullying.

3. Family and friends of victims of suicides.

4. Family and friends of victims of murders, hijackings and rapes.

We are also looking for Professionals that might want to offer their services pro bono especially those that are studying Psychology, or trained medical practioners that trained overseas and cannot practise in South Africa.
